weather across places in louisiana, mississippi. that cold air across places in the west will actually impact portions of this frontal system. we'll be seeing freezing rain across northeastern portions of the state of louisiana and west central portions of mississippi. we could actually be seeing accumulations of ice out here of up to half an inch. please be careful on the road ways. >>steve: maria, thank you very much. >>gretchen: coming up, could james bond be the answer to the gun debate? vice president joe biden thinks yes. how close are we to making that smart gun a reality. up next. >>peter: a big change comes in happy meals. find out what's in, what's out. there's the sign to the bullpen. here he comes. you wouldn't want your doctor doing your job, the pitch! whoa! so why are you doing his? only your doctor can determine if your persistent heartburn is actually something more serious like acid reflux disease. over time, stomach acid can damage the lining of your esophagus. for many, prescription nexium not only provides 24-hour heartburn relief, but can also help heal acid-relat
